Jez Kerr (A Certain Ratio) is raising money for C.A.L.M. (Campaign Against Living Miserably).
Jez says "Whilst working at the Post Office I produced 100's of drawings at a time when I was unwell. Now recovering I would like to use these drawings to help raise funds for C.A.L.M. I have previously helped them with their 31 Songs album which helped to set up a full time help line."
There are approximately 500 hand drawn pictures which can be viewed on Jez's Facebook page.

Post punk cult band The Names emerged in the winter of 1977-1978 as The Passengers, gathering immediate attention on the local Brussels scene. In 1979, after a series of successful gigs and a crucial step forward opening for Magazine, they recorded their first E.P. ("Spectators Of Life") and attracted the interest of prominent label Factory Records in Manchester.
Their first British studio session (at Stockport's Strawberry Studio) produced the single "Nightshift" / "I Wish I Could Speak Your Language (Fac 29). Receiving enthusiastic reviews in the UK and abroad, it marked the start of a long and fruitful collaboration with producer Martin Hannett. The album "Swimming" followed as well as more singles, including "Calcutta" and "The Astronaut".
